6:32pm
healthy lead. northern virginia is still yet to come and and there's so voting in northern virginia. this could be a long night. floor that is so close -- florida we're trying to figure out which counties are outstanding because that could make a difference. if i'm a democrat or republican thinking about 2016 i am definitely thinking having a latino to as the president or vice presidential candidate and they could be the difference and this campaign. >> a factor will allow people already know but if obama wins ohio history is on his side. no republican has won the white house without winning ohio. >> why the county is is traditionally determine which way those he has it obama has a slight lead there.

6:37pm
the red with a hundred and 4 electoral college votes with president obama as 124. those numbers are expected to change very very sound. we were just informed that cnn and our affiliates in florida say that 7 million votes have been cast and governor romney leaves by fewer than 1000 votes. how about a hundred votes is what governor romney is leading about. it is still way too close to call florida and a swing state of new jet virginia and new hampshire as well. we'll be back with more right after this.

blue to obama. 20 electoral college votes go to president obama bringing him to 144. still trailing mitt romney 2 has won 54. pennsylvania traditionally a blue state but governor romney and his camp that they could make some ground there. he was even and the ground state today. it goes to president obama. let's take a quick look because the situation right there has just been updated as well. president obama trailing in the popular vote 49% to mitt romney is 51%. that is where we stand 22 percent of precincts reporting here. we will continue to update the popular vote and electoral college. we would check and for the reaction and pennsylvania and other key states. >> i always thought that
6:46pm
pennsylvania was a question of run these people had to much money to spend. they pulled a lot of ads because of hurricane sandy. they tried hail mary there and that they had a favorable infrastructure in terms of the republican government. they probably thought they get somewhere but once again when the tail en floor that is getting very very interesting -- florida >> that is crazy. >> the number it that president bush apparently won florida by it and 2008. 527 as a number that robs a lot of democrats wrong. it looks as if the president
6:47pm
has taken a 10,000 boat lead in florida. two interesting things is where the republicans held their convention. they held the there because they wanted to win hillsborough. the president is winning hillsborough county not by much but i just enough. again are the tampa bay region president obama is winning back as well. >> just a background and florida with 29 electoral votes so that is the biggest prize in the battleground thamap. >> i think that the october surprise, what does or and have they have hurricanes. also latino voters. those two things combined romney's you on deportation and hand
6:48pm
hurricane sandy maybe the tipping factors in florida. both campaigns left florida and basically stayed in the midwest for a last two or three days of the campaign. that's without was going to really be fought. it will be very interesting that the president pulls out fla. he does not need virginia. he does not need wisconsin. he wins basically. if he pulls out there will be a lot of people and the republican party getting themselves and had wondering how did we lose florida. they thought they had won florida. there are probably thinking >> they're probably thinking my god is days of the with legal challenges. >> it could happen. >> we'll be back with michael gawky and a bit. -- michael e. hochtief >>
